Pacific Heights Reviews

Its more dangerous than it seems, My friend lives there and is constantly being harassed. Ive had friends raped and assaulted in the parks. The police didn't do much to help at all. There is corruption here too with underground drugs and sex rings. The rich people use the money to make it disappear. Theres at least on big drug operation going nearby (within a 15 min walk) that the police arent doing anything about. Trafficking meth and coke.

I visit the neighborhood a lot to dogsit for a family and on walks I've realized the place is super safe, there are a lot of restaurants for any dietary need. Lots of families live around, it is very clean and a there are a lot of stores for everyday necessities around. The neighborhood is not very affordable.
